Matt moved to Orange Park to assume the role of Lead Teaching Pastor in April 2014 after spending five years as Associate Pastor at Community Bible Church in the metro-Detroit area. The good news of Jesus is the passion of his life and ministry. He desires to help people connect the truth of this good news to the diversity of their life circumstances, offering great hope in despair, lasting answers to their questions, and boundless joy in their sorrow.
Matt graduated from Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary with an M.Div. in 2006. He married his wife, Erica, in 2002, and has 4 children - Stella, Ruby, Schaeffer, and Eloise. He enjoys sports and is brave enough to remain an Ohio State fan even in the midst of Gator country!
Joseph moved to Florida in May 2016 to become part of CBC after serving at a church in Milwaukee for over four years. He provides leadership to our worship gatherings and ministries. His passion is for people to know, love, and worship Jesus; particularly through corporate worship. He has a heart for discipleship and desires to mentor musicians and the congregation in developing a worshiping lifestyle that glorifies Christ as they go about daily life.
Joseph graduated in 2011 with a degree in church music. He and his wife, Anna, were married in July 2015 and are avid Green Bay Packers fans. They welcomed their first child, Asaph, in September 2020.
